The theme for this year parade is a Smoky Mountain Christmas.

Bryson City United Methodist Church will have a Christmas float promoting our live Nativity which will take place on December 20 and 21 at the church. The Swain County Christmas parade is on December 7th, and it will start at 2:00 p.m.

Come out and support the church’s float, children, and actors that will be riding on the float, as well as the walkers handing out candy throughout the processional. Be sure to secure a parking place in advance and bring some seats to enjoy this event.

Rumor has it that Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus will be making a surprise appearance.
